You can describe Jake Blauvelt in many ways, but two words that resonate with the dynamic rider are: Well Balanced. From his aggressive riding to everyday life, Jake focuses tons of his energy on being well balanced. Yes, Jake kills it on the board, but to be able to consistently perform at such a high level demands dedication and hard work. Jake eats well, unplugs from everything by going fly-fishing, and knows he’s super fortunate to be able to do what he does.

Because of Snowboarding – Austin Hironaka – Episode 5

Austin Hironaka is one of those snowboarders that keeps your faith strong in the freedom that snowboarding gives us. Just when you think all snowboarders look the same, or you get tired of the same old tricks, just set your sights on Austin Hironaka and it won’t take long before you realize you can always give an old trick a new style or a new trick an old tweak.

There are no rules, and setting yourself apart with style is one of the greatest talents to attain. Austin’s ingenuity and personality shine on and off the snow and his wicked moves on his snowboard never cease to inspire and entertain. Every team should have an Austin Hironaka. JAPMOB!

Ride Snowboard Pro Team rider Marco Feichtner might make snowboarding look easy, but the path to success has been anything but for the Austrian. Macro has a friendly, laid-back persona, and is the type of guy you like to be around. But, underneath it all he’s all business and thrives on hard work – it’s ingrained in his blood. In the fourth segment – which drops today – of Ride’s six-part video series “Because of Snowboarding,” Marco shows us how he lives big both on and off the snow – from throwing giant, stylish airs in the backcountry to digging into his artistic skill and passion for hand engraving masterpieces. For all the grom rippers out there, Marco has these words of advice: word hard and you will reach your dreams.

Released weekly, each short film is dedicated to highlighting a different pro rider, and captures the personal stories and intimacy each rider has with snowboarding.

Because of Snowboarding is directed and produced by Crispin Cannon and Shaun Anderson of The Solidarity Union.
